Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
In 2000, the United States federal government passed the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), which is intended to protect children from indecent information on the Internet and prevent personal information about students from being available online. Specifically, CIPA requires schools that receive e-rate funds to install and maintain filters to restrict access to inappropriate content. It requires steps to protect youngsters using email, chat, and similar tools. CIPA does allow the filter to be disabled when only adults are using the network, but that is rarely done as children are hardly ever absent from school when adults are there.
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
The primary goal of COPPA is to place parents in control over what information is collected from their young children online. The Rule was designed to protect children under age 13, while accounting for the dynamic nature of the Internet. The Rule applies to operators of commercial websites and online services (including mobile apps and IoT devices, such as smart toys) directed to children under 13 that collect, use, or disclose personal information from children, or on whose behalf such information is collected or maintained (such as when personal information is collected by an ad network to serve targeted advertising). The Rule also applies to operators of general audience websites or online services with actual knowledge that they are collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under 13, and to websites or online services that have actual knowledge that they are collecting personal information directly from users of another website or online service directed to children. Operators covered by the Rule must:
- Provide direct notice to parents and obtain verifiable parental consent, with limited exceptions, before collecting personal information online from children;
- Give parents the choice of consenting to the operator’s collection and internal use of a child’s information, but prohibiting the operator from disclosing that information to third parties (unless disclosure is integral to the site or service, in which case, this must be made clear to parents);
- Provide parents access to their child's personal information to review and/or have the information deleted;
- Give parents the opportunity to prevent further use or online collection of a child's personal information;
- Maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of information they collect from children, including by taking reasonable steps to release such information only to parties capable of maintaining its confidentiality and security;
- Retain personal information collected online from a child for only as long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected and delete the information using reasonable measures to protect against its unauthorized access or use; and
- Not condition a child’s participation in an online activity on the child providing more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children’s education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the education records. When a student turns 18 years old, or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, the rights under FERPA transfer from the parents to the student (“eligible student”). The FERPA statute is found at 20 U.S.C. § 1232g and the FERPA regulations are found at 34 CFR Part 99.

Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA)
Under SOPPA each school district must post on its website:
- Data the district collects, maintains or discloses to any person, entity, third party, or governmental agency
- An explanation on how the information is used by the district, to whom it is disclosed, and for what purpose
- A list of companies the school district has written agreements with, a copy of each agreement, and business address of each operator within 10 business days after entering into an agreement
- A list of each subcontractor to whom covered information may be disclosed
- Procedures parents may use to carry out their rights under SOPPA
- A list of breaches of covered information going back five years
Recent amendments to SOPPA give parents greater access to their students’ covered information, including rights to:
- Inspect and review their student’s covered information
- Request a paper or electronic copy of covered information from the school, even if that information is maintained by an operator or ISBE
- Request corrections to factual inaccuracies contained in a student’s covered information if the school determines such an inaccuracy exists
If you need assistance in any of the above or related to any questions involving your student’s data, please contact Michael Szpisjak, director of infrastructure services (email@example.com).
